    Israel’s domestic security service, the Shin Bet, told Haaretz that some of the players were barred “due to damaging security information and in light of the security situation.”

    Palestinians argue that the Israeli government and Israeli forces seek to stifle Palestinian sport as a further extension of the military occupation in the West Bank and the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

    But Israel said that it has conducted raids on the PFA headquarters, such as one in November 2014, and restricts the movement of Palestinian personnel, regardless of their status, into and out of the Gaza Strip for security reasons.

    ZURICH — FIFA has extended the work of its panel mediating between Israeli and Palestinian soccer officials, and declined to act against clubs based in Israeli West Bank settlements.

    Panel chairman Tokyo Sexwale says his monitoring group will meet by the end of November.

    The South African official briefed the FIFA Council on Friday and hopes to present a final report at a Jan. 9-10 meeting in Zurich.
